Kuwait says it will host first summit of the Asia Cooperation Dialogue

KUWAIT CITY -- Kuwait said Sunday it will host the first summit of the 10-year-old Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) this week, bringing together economic powers China, Japan and leading energy producers.

"The summit will discuss ways to activate the ACD, a mechanism to make it permanent and activate implementation of decisions," Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Khaled Al-Sabah told a news conference.

Founded in Thailand in 2002, the ACD has a membership of 32 nations including China, Japan, India and South Korea in addition to major oil producers in the Gulf, Iran and Russia.

"It is necessary to move forward to an advanced stage. This will be achieved if the summit approves a joint Thai-Kuwait proposal to make the ACD permanent with a secretariat," said Sheikh Sabah.
